Publisher's Summary

Pulitzer Prize, Biography/Autobiography, 1999
Few American icons provoke more enduring fascination than Charles Lindbergh - renowned for his one-man transatlantic flight in 1927, remembered for the sorrow surrounding the kidnapping and death of his firstborn son in 1932, and reviled by many for his opposition to America's entry into World War II.
Lindbergh's is "a dramatic and disturbing American story," says the Los Angeles Times Book Review, and this biography - the first to be written with unrestricted access to the Lindbergh archives and extensive interviews of his friends, colleagues, and close family members - is "the definitive account."

Lindbergh Bio

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Recommened if you are interested in the life of Lindy, early aviation or history of the mid-20th century. Very detailed account of Lindbergh's life. I felt it was very well written and read in this audio book.

Amazing biography of an amazing man

It is a very long book but worth every minute of learning about a man of whom most of us only knew that he was the first to fly solo across the ocean. He was so much more.

Quite simply, magnificent.

Hugely influential, complex and brilliant Charles Lindbergh was a pioneer in the truest sense of the word, known mainly for his 1927 transatlantic flight but there is so much more. Triumph and tragedy led to unwanted fame and an uneasy relationship with the press and public. Misquoted and misunderstood his reluctance and stubbornness to engage with his detractors made him a villian in the eyes of some. His ground-breaking war work went largely unnoticed, his patriotism should never have been questioned but the public's unease with their false perceptions of his motives lingered for years. Often more comfortable when moving across the globe whilst embarking on a number of studies, missions and projects he was active late into his life. Complemented by his brilliant in her own right wife Ann, his story and that of his wife make this biography an astonishing tour de force. Should be considered the definitive account of his life and times. 5 stars, no question.

a pretty much perfect audio biography

A pretty much h perfect biography. Amazing source material, of course, and well researched. I'd go so far as to say definitive.
